By Jennifer Imhoff-Dousharm
1 c Butter, softened
2 1/2 c Flour
1 c Powder sugar
1 tsp Almond extract
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 tsp Salt
1/ 2 c Powdered sugar
2 tbsp Milk

1 drop Green food coloring
In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, and salt.
Add in the butter and mix thoroughly.
Mix in both extracts; dough will be crumbly looking.
Take a small handful of dough and smash together to form rock using your big, good, strong hands. //start with a ball shape and then smooth out the sides unevenly.
//Making Rockbiter faces is highly encouraged (The boy child also suggests Moai – Easter Island heads – can made)
Place rocks …er cookies onto a baking sheet
Bake at 375° for 7-8 minutes
Transfer cookies to a flat surface lined with parchment paper //yay for easy clean up.
Mix all the glaze ingredients together all glaze ingredients into a small bowl.
Using a pastry brush coat each rock with the glaze
// I put two coats, going through each rock once and then going back through to make sure I didn’t miss any spot and also allow for the first coat to dry a bit.
Allow cookies to dry for at least an hour before biting
